The Spanish government has announced the country's top-flight professional football league can resume from 8 June.

La Liga has been suspended because of coronavirus since March but players returned to training earlier this month with the hope of a resumption behind closed doors.

Spain has been one of the countries hit worst by the virus but has relaxed restrictions in recent weeks.

The German Bundesliga became the first major European league to restart last weekend.

A behind closed doors game between Real Betis and Sevilla could restart the Spanish football season on 11 June.

La Liga chief Javier Tebas told Spanish TV he hoped the Seville derby can be "a tribute to all the people who have died".

Tebas has also warned footballers to "be careful with their actions" after four Sevilla players apologised for breaking rules on social gathering.

Ever Banega, Lucas Ocampos, Franco Vazquez and Luuk de Jong were pictured among 12 people at a party at the weekend. Spain has eased its strict lockdown rules, but gatherings of more than 10 people are still not allowed.

"Players are an example to society," Tebas said. "I call on all footballers to not act like this. We have to be very careful because a lot of people's jobs are at stake."
